Over Spring Break (March 13–17, 2017) the Office of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining will be undergoing an upgrade to the university’s cable system on both the Indiana and Punxsutawney campuses (excluding the Fairman Center). This upgrade will result in a cable outage that will last several days; however, at the end of the upgrade, the university will have transitioned to digital cable. The benefits of this include more available channels and better signal.
Please see the commonly asked questions below for any assistance you may need. Further assistance is available through the university’s maintenance work order system. If you are an on-campus student, these work requests can be done at your hall office.
We thank you for your patience during this upgrade, and please let us know if you have any questions,
Valerie BaroniDirector, Housing and DiningOffice of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining
A digital tuner allows your TV to tune to digital or HD channels. Most, but not all, TVs that were made after 2006 have one built in. If your TV is currently able to get HD channels, then it has a digital tuner and should work after the upgrade.
If you are an on-campus student and concerned that your TV does not have a digital tuner, please go to your hall office to enter a work request. Our technician will come to your space and troubleshoot your TV.
Once the update is complete, a new channel lineup can be found online.
Some highlights of new channels include: Disney, Disney XD, The Cooking Channel, FOX Business News, Hallmark, amongst others, as well as the following premium channels: HBO, HBO Family, HBO Latino, and HBO Signature.
